Pall designed, built and operates one of the world’s largest oxidation treatment systems for the destruction of 1,4-dioxane in groundwater. The system can pump and filter over two million gallons of water a day. The 1,4-dioxane is difficult to treat because it is highly mobile and miscible in water.
Jack Henrich, NGWA president said: “Pall’s remediation project is praiseworthy for its effectiveness in attacking large scale contamination of 1,4-dioxane. The ‘persistence’ of 1,4-dioxane in this case is exceeded only by the ingenuity of the award-winning technology to remediate groundwater and Pall’s demonstrated commitment to this complex issue.”
The award will be presented at the 2010 NGWA Ground Water Expo and Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 8, 2010.
